No matter where you go, or what recipes you find on the internet, it can be hard to find a good vegan-friendly shake.
Actually, that's not true ... you can. But guess what? They taste terrible!
I mean seriously ... I haven't found many vegan friendly shakes that don't taste like peas, grass, or a little bit of both.
That's why I wanted to give you a vegan-friendly protein shake that doesn't only taste great ... But also has enough protein without going overboard on the calories.
As an added bonus, this vegan protein smoothie is super easy to throw together. You can work it into your morning routine in no time!
Focusing on your health and diet takes time and dedication … so anything that can make it just a little bit easier and help you reach your goals is a win in my book!
If you are a vegan, or follow a plant-based lifestyle, you need to try this smoothie. It will help you get the protein your body needs without destroying your routine or zapping your time away.

Benefits of a Vegan Protein Smoothie
Listen … using vegan-friendly protein is no consolation prize or unenjoyable alternative to typical protein sources. In fact, as long as the amino acid profile is similar to that of other protein options like whey, it's not bad at all!
If you prefer a plant-based diet and are struggling to get enough protein, this vegan protein smoothie is a great way to increase your protein intake. Plus, getting more protein in your diet can have a ton of benefits...
Promote Lean Muscle Growth
Your body needs protein to repair and build new lean muscle. Unfortunately, getting a sufficient amount of protein can be the most difficult part of a vegan lifestyle. Just like any other complete protein source, our vegan protein powder has all the essential amino acids your body needs to do just that.
Great For Weight Loss
Getting more protein in your diet is a great way to keep your calorie intake lower and burn more calories. Since protein helps your body repair and build lean muscle, this can be advantageous for weight loss as well. That's because muscle tissue can help your body burn more calories at rest as opposed to other tissues in your body.
Bonus (With Vegan Power Pro)
The vegan protein powder used in this vegan protein smoothie, Vegan Power Pro, also has a vitamin superfood blend, VitaBerry® fruit blend, and digestive enzyme blend for extra health benefits. This can help with everything from absorbing the protein and nutrients more efficiently as well as immunity, gut health, and more.
Vegan protein smoothies can really go a long way in keeping your body healthy and helping you meet your protein goals. Like I mentioned earlier, though … you need to make sure the protein powder you work into your diet is the best quality so you can reap the benefits.
Our Vegan Power Pro is gluten free, has no artificial flavoring, has a complete amino acids profile, and is completely plant-based. Plus, there are tons of different flavors to choose from that you can use to make your preferred smoothie flavor.
